We are planning on having a teddy bears picnic (at snack time) on Friday the 19th of July. Please can your child bring a bear.

Our summer party will be held on the last day of term, the 23rd of July.
Aaron Williams, the entertainer will be returning to entertain the children. All are welcome. We are inviting everyone to join us from 12:30 onwards for food, please bring your own picnic lunch and blanket.
If your child only attends the morning session they are welcome to stay until you arrive at 12:30 for lunch and the summer party. If your child is in session on a Tuesday they are welcome to stay without you.

This week we say Goodbye to Flora and her Mum Posy as they are moving away to pastures new. Both will be missed and we wish all of their family the best of luck and wishes for their new home. Posy has spent the last couple of years volunteering her time as a Trustee (taking on the role of Treasurer) and her hard work and commitment to volunteering her spare time to the playgroup has been greatly appreciated by all.

We hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Julia, Sharon, Grace, Lisa, Hannah, Jackie and Amy
